At the park café, Chelsea asks Kevin why Bella would think Chloe is still alive.
Nick talks to Faith on the phone. Hes glad shes having fun at camp and assures her its OK to miss Grandmas concert. Grandpa is fine too, and no, he hasnt found a new chess partner.
At the main house, Victor dazzles Nikki with gifts: a Chelsea 2.0 gown and a sparkly necklace. She deserves them, according to him. Shes endured the ravages of MS nobly. He moves to help her with the necklace clasp, but she insists on doing it herself. He turns his back to pour himself a glass of water and doesnt see her struggle.
Lily talks to her dad on the phone. Does he have any free time? For her, always. They agree to meet at the athletic club in an hour and a half. After she hangs up, Cane comes home. Lily tells him they have more problems. Mattie knows something is amiss. The kids must be told. Cane, coward that he is, wants to put it off, at least until the results of the paternity test are known. Theyve been down this road, if shell recall. Chloe tried to pass off her child as Canes and it turned out to be false. Lily sighs. It would be a small blessing if Cane isnt the father of Juliettes baby. But just as she begins to have a little hope, he delivers more bad news. Victoria fired him.
Victoria bemoans the increased workload at Brash & Sassy. Billy is astonished that she fired Cane, but she says she had no choice. No explanation necessary, Billy says. Its about time. Hes willing to work longer hours if need be.
At the park: Kevin assures Chelsea that Bella knows Mommy is in heaven. She refers to going to Chloes gravesite as visiting Mommy. He probably shouldnt allow it, but he doesnt have the heart to correct her. Chelsea has been there. Connor used to talk about Adam like that all the time, but he doesnt so much anymore. It kind of bothers her---as if Connor has forgotten his father. Kevin realizes they wouldnt be having this conversation if not for Chloes actions, and he apologizes. Not to worry. She knows that anger is nonproductive and has moved beyond it. She suggests scheduling a playdate for the kids. Hell have to take a raincheck. He and Bella are moving to Portland, OR---today. Genoa City holds too many painful memories for him to be able to move on. Chelsea is disappointed but wishes him well.
At the ranch: Nikki comments on Victors extravagance. Its too much. He insists it isnt. As much as she appreciates the trinkets, they dont change anything between them. She occasionally flinches as if in pain and she looks tired. Victor says he never meant to cause her undue stress. She dismisses his concern and says shell follow through with the concert because its for a worthy cause.
At the Ashbys: Lily isnt surprised Cane was fired. She tells Cane to stop blaming others, especially Billy, for his predicament. Cane was the one who got drunk, had sex, and then lied about it. Cane knows and hes ashamed. He reaches for her hand but she shrinks from him.
Chelsea goes to Nicks and tells him about Kevins fresh start. Nick thinks its a fine idea. Talk shifts to preparations for Nikkis concert. Nick tells her that Nikki is back from her spontaneous trip. She was at a holistic health center in Colorado and claims to feel better. Chelsea senses doubt. Without Nikkis knowing it, Nick observed her at the piano and saw the pain she was in. He didnt tell Victor about it because she made it clear hes not to know about her flare-up. His only hope is that some act of God stops the concert. Chelsea assures him that Nikki will ultimately do whats best for her.
Gloria goes to the Chancellor mansion, at Esthers request. She stunned to hear about Kevins relocation plans. Hes shutting out his own mother and shes plenty angry about it. She intends to talk some sense into that boy.
Paul meets Kevin at the park. He doesnt play the heavy, but he is curious about Kevins disappearance and the bloody scratches on his face. Kevin doesnt go into great detail but tells Paul where he went and what his plans are.
At the Ashbys: Cane admits he was naïve to think settling the lawsuit with Juliette would solve all his problems. Damn straight, Lily says. If the baby is his, theyll be dealing with consequences for many years to come. She still cant get over the humiliation of finding out about his infidelity as she did. She knows the truth only because Cane was caught on videotape. How can she ever trust him again?
At the park: Paul has more questions. Does Kevin have job lined up? A place to live? Has he really thought this through? Kevin is confident hell be able to land a tech job. As for the void he leaves at the police station, hell be happy to return to train his replacement. Paul gets emotional. He never thought hed say it, but hell miss Kevin. They stand and hug.
At the ranch: Nikki adores the gown, but the hemline is a bit too long and might cause her to trip. Victor dials up Chelsea. Shes on her way. Smooth move, Nikki says. Too bad their personal problems cant be solved so easily. Victor vows never to give up trying.
Charlie and Mattie come home, taunting each other. She calls him a shallow, skirt-chasing lifeguard and he calls her a nerd. Cane intervenes. Solemnly, he says he has something to tell them. The lawsuit has been settled and yes, thats good, but there were extenuating circumstances so Cane was fired. Charlie and Mattie jump to their dads defense. Its unfair. Hell find a better job. Charlie offers his earnings as a lifeguard to help with the loss of income and Mattie says shell do her part by getting a job at the coffeehouse rather than pursue an internship.
Lily enters Victorias office. No one is there, but she sees a cardboard box with Canes name on it. Victoria and Billy return. Victoria apologizes for Canes termination, but Lily says its not necessary. The company still wants her as brand ambassador if shes still interested. Of course she is. Victoria casts a glance at the box. She was going to have a courier deliver it to Cane, but Lily is welcome to take it. She leaves empty handed.
When Kevin arrives at the Chancellor place, Esther escorts Bella to the kitchen for cookies while Gloria scolds Kevin for keeping her in the dark about his comings and goings. Kevin says if she cares as much as she says she does, shell accept his decision to move. He again refers to his bad memories as a reason. Liar, Gloria says. Kevin is a creature of habit and cant stand change, so his desire for a fresh start rings hollow. Kevin admits he clings to the familiar, which is probably why he tried to marry Chloe three times. Its time to break out of his comfort zone.
Chelsea to the rescue at the main house. Nikki looks great in her dress. Victor sure knows her well, Chelsea says. Meanwhile, at the tack house, Nick presses Victor to end Nikkis misery and cancel the concert. Victor will do no such thing and he expects Nick to be in attendance. Victor says his motives are pure. He wants to honor Nikki, and shes no shrinking violet. If she didnt want to perform, shed say so. Nick disagrees. Victor says canceling the concert now would cause her emotional pain. Better than physical pain, Nick says. Back at the main house, Chelsea is ready to proceed with alterations, but she needs to take the dress to her studio to do them. Nikki struggles to undo the fastener and Chelsea helps her.
At a secluded club table, Lily and Neil talk about the mess shes in, the paternity test, and what her next move will be. Shes at a loss. She told her teens only what she thought they needed to know: that their father was accused of sexual harassment. She hopes she wont have to tell them about a sibling on the way. Thats not her only concern. Her marriage is obviously on shaky ground. Neil agrees she has some big decisions to make.
At Brash & Sassy: Victoria and Billy agree that they like and respect Lily, but they disagree about Cane. Billy is glad to be rid of him, but he was a valuable employee for Victoria. Now shes more concerned about the Ashby family as a whole. To complicate things further, Reed is interested in Mattie. Victoria had to tell him she fired Matties dad. Just when she thinks things cant get worse, they do. She gets a notice that the spring quarter sales were way down, and no wonder with all the turmoil within Brash & Sassy. Victoria assumes full responsibility. Billy says theyll weather the storm, as always.
At the Chancellor mansion: Kevin and Bella say their goodbyes to the grandmas. Once out the door, Kevin wipes his tears and tells Bella theyre off to be a family.
At the Ashbys: Cane is touched and tells his kids not to worry about money. He gives vague answers to their questions about his firing and is grateful for their loyalty.
Victor startles Nikki at home. Does she still want to perform? He realizes he never asked if she wanted to; he just assumed. The party alone will produce hefty donations. She asks why the change of heart. Hes worried about her stress level. Under no circumstances is he to cancel. At first she thought his goal was to humiliate her and she intended to prove him wrong, but now her motives have shifted. Shes going to follow through for her own satisfaction. Victor seems puzzled.
At the tack house, Chelsea says Nick is right. His mother is clearly in pain. Nick resolves to cancel the concert, come hell or high water.
